In my collection of books I have a Primer from Pennsylvania. I do not have it handy at this moment to give you the date on the book or the age for which the book was written but I remember reading through it knowing I was absolutely clueless on many things students from a bygone era had to know by time they graduated High School.
That leads me to a quick mention of David Barton and Wallbuilders and especially to pointing out a fantastic segment on the Glenn Beck Radio Program the other day:
Important Presidential Farewell Addresses Warned Against the Very Troubles We Face
Embeded in the article are the following three link:
- George Washington: Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
- Dwight D. Eisenhower: 421 – Farewell Radio and Television Address to the American People, January 17, 1961
- Ronald Reagan: Farewell Address to the Nation, January 11, 1989
I hope you will read Glenn’s post and then go back through the three links as well. Then for a great educational experience, watch these two Wallbuilders videos:
